With everyone tuning to podcasts in India, it was a natural turning point for Indian poets to look towards podcasts to share their art. The content space over the past few years was not a supportive self-sustaining medium for poets across the country. As many turned towards imagery, text, and videos to try to share their poetries, this did not do complete justice to the artistic aspects of their work.
While open mic events were an opportunity for artists to come together and share this form of art, with the unfortunate event of the COVID-19 pandemic, such events have now moved online onto social media platforms. However, this pandemic proved to be a blessing in disguise as many creators have taken steps to explore different ways of sharing their work, podcasts being one of the most powerful mediums.
With podcasting, poets are now able to share the complete artistic storytelling experience of poetry with listeners across the country. Podcasts are accessible, easy to create, and free. With a platform like Hubhopper Studio, artists across the country are able to create & launch their poetry podcasts for free, and distribute their poetry podcast across all major audio platforms & devices.
